The owner of a popular Loddon tea room has invited the entire Norwich City squad to visit her cafe for a free breakfast before the end of the season in a bid to boost morale and show her support for the Canaries.


Caroline Dwen, who has run Rosy Lee’s Tea Room for almost 15 years, also believes her café is lucky after it was named one of the best tea rooms in the country by The Times in 2011, and hopes some of her luck could rub off on the Norwich players.

Norwich City take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday before their last game of the season at Carrow Road against Arsenal on May 11. They desperately need to pick up points to escape relegation.

Mrs Dwen said: “I’m a Norwich fan, one of my waiters Jack is a die-hard Norwich fan and all our customers are Norwich fans.

“Recently everyone has been a bit down and disappointed with the results, but we want to show them how much support there is for them, not just in Loddon but in the whole of Norfolk.

“It would be lovely if they came to visit us for breakfast, and I know it would make a lot of local fans very happy.

“We just want to do anything we can to help them stay in the Premier League.”

  • Yes the whole of the first team squad can come round my house Sunday lunch time and have some good old Norfolk Dumplings, followed by good old Spotted dick and custard..

  • Good on you Caroline, morale is whats needs tackling. I also would like to offer the team a communal game of Bosseln, at any time they'd like, we have a team ready and prepared to show them how its done. For those who don't know the game, have a look online. Its also a good game to introduce to Londoners, currently enticed by a leaflet to 'talk to each other' on one day in August. I can guarantee they talk to each other after 200 yards of playing the game.

  • A nice sentiment from some decent fans. I think I'd boost their morale by making them work in a normal job for normal pay for a while so they realise how privaliged they are to be pulling on the Norwich shirt ;-)
